The 41-year-old Adam Martin, who works as a firefighter in the city of Coverack in Cornwall in England, has vowed that he will never, ever eat popcorn again.
Adam was last year close to losing his life, when he would remove some popcorn that was stuck between his teeth. Adam tried to remove the small piece of popcorn between the teeth, but got a severe blood infection which led to inflammation in the heart and destroyed his heart valves. The doctors explained to Adam that he could be dead, if he had waited three more days to go to the doctor.
It writes multiple media, including Cornwall Live, Mirror and Metro.

The unfortunate history of the hotel started in september 2019, when Adam, along with his wife, Helen, shared a bag of popcorn while they were watching a movie. Here put a piece of popcorn stuck between the teeth at the back of his mouth. Adam was almost about to be insane in three days, and he tried to remove the small piece of popcorn with, among other things, a toothpick and a metalnål.
Adams efforts to remove the small piece of popcorn created the bleeding of the gums and thereby received the bacteria from the mouth to penetrate into his circulation.
Just a week after we started Adam to get the sweats, headaches and hjerteflimmer, there are some of the symptoms of the deadly disease hjertebetændelse. Then went with Adam to the doctor and was diagnosed with this disease, who also had already destroyed his heart valves.
the Doctors told me that I had been dead, if I had waited to go to the doctor for a further three days, " explains Adam, who subsequently underwent a heart surgery that saved his life.

- If I had gone to the dentist with the same, I would have avoided the terrible disease. It is the worst experience I have had in my life.
The 41-year-old Adam Martin is the father of three, Megan, 15, And Holly, 14, and George, a seven-year. After the operation, he came out, fortunately, relatively fast and have it in the day much better.
